“Stacey wrote a brand new course on peer pressure to meet our needs. Our members were able to explore positive and negative examples of peer pressure, all backed up with the theory and strategies to deal with. The young people I work with said the session was interesting, interactive and useful – as usual! Stacey is a natural trainer, who easily builds a rapport to create an engaging session – Thank you so much!”
“Thanks Stacey. I am going to make an effort to ask more open questions, and to reinforce good behaviours.”
‘I felt apprehensive before this training but I am going to take away absolutely loads, top tips to support staff, ideas for happy kits and developing coping strategies. I am now enthusiastic about what I can achieve.’
‘As part of Mental Health Awareness Month and activities to focus on our people and teams during the pandemic, we invited Stacey to present, raise awareness and field questions around mental health, self care and how to help cope with the global pandemic. Taking the time to understand the target audience and areas of interest based on regions and cultures, Stacey adapted her styles and sessions to suit the audiences. Stacey’s experience, professionalism and energy shone throughout with an ability to relate content to personal experiences to make it real and plenty of interaction to engage the audience. We received nothing but positive feedback from attendees of all sessions and I wouldn’t hesitate to invite recommend her to others.’
“I felt excited before this training as I knew you were delivering it! I am really full of ideas and ready to start implementing them and making a difference where I work. I am going to take forward the practical tips like including mental health in staff inductions etc.”
“Stacey is very experienced in matters of drug & alcohol abuse and mental health. Stacey is very comfortable in any environment, ranging from 1:1 coaching sessions to large audiences of every age. Experienced at working in schools and colleges and equally amongst people of a more senior age. Stacey brings an abundance of personality and charisma, coupled with her creative presentation style will brighten any room. Attendees will enjoy Stacey’s presentation style and will also feel motivated to challenge their lifestyle.”
‘I found it really useful to have some direct resources to hand out or use with YP, as we often have to signpost to service’s we know will take a long time. It can be frustrating to not have something more immediate and this mental health toolkit will all really help.’
‘When Covid 19 hit the nation and lockdown began, our greatest concern was the well-being of the young people we work with and their families. The pandemic itself was causing young people and their parents to feel overwhelmed, and it was important to enable those households to talk about their emotions so they could better understand them and manage them during this particularly challenging time. The Happy Kit enabled us to support families when we were forced to pause our services, extending an olive branch of support to vulnerable household and providing a tool that would help the young people feel more in control of how they were feeling. It is an excellent resource, and one that we continue to refer to when supporting our young people and families virtually.’
‘I really liked how open and honest Stacey was about her own experiences. It made it feel like a safe space. I’m going to remind myself of the mindfulness and being present & focus on what I can control.’
Nothing I didn’t like … but I have some great content on handling stress and building resilience which I think would also futureproof the team from mental health challenges 🙂
